HP LaserJet Pro MFP M521dn

 

The HP LaserJet Pro MFP M521dn monochrome laser MFP delivers above-par text quality and unusually capable scan features.

High-quality text. Prints. Scans. Faxes. Copies. Direct email sender. Scans both sides of a page at once.

Graphics output is at the low end of par for a mono laser multi-function printer. Can't scan in duplex for faxing.

Faster print speed would be welcome also. However, the time saved with duplex scanning and copying if you need it can more than make up for whatever points the printer loses on print speed. The text quality is a big plus too, as part of a highly...

Highly inefficient and frustrating machine

 

I have been working in various law firms for over 8 years now and this is BY FAR the most inefficient printer/scanner I have ever seen! The button responses are really slow, the address book is really slow and it needs to initialize and/or calibrate...

Works well expect for Scanning

 

We have our File Server on a Different Subnet then our copier, and scanning takes 10-13 seconds per page to scan! However, if your network scan folder location is on the same subnet as the Copier it worked great. HP support had no idea what the problem...

Good product but slow at scanning

 

I downsized to this printer as a cost effective replacement for my older HP model. It takes a full ream of paper which is good since I go through a couple of reams a week, at minimum. However, for an office that scans to email many times a day and...

Should be easier to set up

 

It is difficult to set up many of the features of this printer. To set up the unit on my WiFi network, II should have been able to turn it on, choose a WiFi network, enter the network password and go. Instead, I had to call tech support to figure out...

Runs well but loud.

 

Good features and easy to use, but loud when running in small office space. Wish there was a way it would keep track of copies or printed pages for specific clients/users.

Satisfied so far.

 

Some initial condition problems were fixed w/ help of customer service. Website listed wrong wireless card -- resulting in delay and extra $80. Not sure customer service had adequate info on this product, resulting in long phone times.
